Members ready to build on 20% EMS growth in 2015

EMS Volume Growth

After an outstanding year for EMS in 2015 in which volume has grown over 20%, the EMS Cooperative plans to build on this success by focusing on boosting service performance excellence and market development strategies in 2016.
All EMS Cooperative members must commit to service performance excellence through full engagement in EMS Pay-for-performance, quick adoption of new standards including EMSEVT V3 and ITMATT, ensuring strong relations with local customs, entering into performance agreements with contracted airlines and their ground handlers, and reaching all key performance indicators.
Market development strategies, including competitive pricing to attract the B2C market, targeting industries with high growth potential, launching value-added services, trade lane know-how to help customers go global, and improving service reliability will be the focus of the year’s regional EMS Symposia for senior managers series to be held in London on 14-15 April for Europe, in Barbados on 9-10 May for the Caribbean, and in Kunming, China on 30 June-1 July for Asia-Pacific.
The EMS Cooperative Extraordinary General Assembly on the cusp of the 26th UPU Congress will be held in Istanbul on 19-20 September and will kick-off the start of the next four-year business cycle for EMS.
The EMS Unit looks forward to seeing all members at our next EMS Cooperative General Assembly on 4-5 February and working with all members of the EMS Cooperative to ensure continued profitable EMS growth in 2016. EMS Cooperative members are encouraged to contact their respective EMS Regional Coordinator for support.
